hagel was nominated to be secretary of defense, i strongly objected based on his record as a senator and some of his comments about our allies in the middle east that absolutely scared the living day lights out of me. my fears, they were not unfounded. as this week hagel proudly announced his proposal to further gut the military readiness of our nation by drausic troop reductions and cuts to our families and family health care. for the past 100 years presidents and our nation's warriors have warned of putting our guard down. both democrat and republican presents from coolidge to roosevelt to eisenhower to reagan reminded us that readiness to fight is the foundation of freedom. the best minds in our nation's history warned of lulling ourselves into the stupid stupor of thinking that the world would be safer and more peaceful if we just holstered our guns and swords. it's folly to think such nonsense. the best way to preserve freedom, keep the peace and protect security is to have a military that's so overwhelmingly powerful that no one on earth would want to poke it into action. frank
hagel was nominated to be wecht ry of defense. some of the comments about our allies in the middle east it stared the living die lights out of me. my fears were not understanded. hagel proudly announced his proposals to further execute the readiness of our nation by food productions and cults to military families k housing, too cam bylet crime. we have warned of putting our gored dawn. for to harry truman to who dangerous. in this readiness world it the bound fags of our freedom. the best military lines from mccar tour to omar brad de to david petraeus warned us to lull into thinking it would be safer and careful. frankly i don't give a rat's rear if pop nations like north korea bully nations like iran like us, matters not at all to me. i want them to know if they raise their hand against us in the next insurance dant. we fool ourselves into thinking we should protect ourselves on the street and asking for military volunteers. i am back from 11 vehicle three years of military tfr. every 18-year-old gets two years of mandatory church. after that they dance 30 yeerps. they have to be read
. strengthen nato's defense posture and impose costs on the putin government. broadly these are objectives most americans want to achieve right now but this particular circumstance i believe presents president obama with a fairly stark choice. ad-libbing was the term kim used. i would describe it as muddling through. he can either seek to mutt dell through this crisis or use it to articulate a broader vision of the role the united states should be playing and what we should be achieving through global leadership at this time. this is important because the russian invasion ever the crimean peninsula, is in my view symptommic of a role in which we see growing pressure against our allies, security partners, our friend in many areas and many regions simultaneously. would compare this moment perhaps to, once again kim mentioned the example of president carter facing the soviet invasion of afghanistan. would compare it both to perhaps president truman in 1947 looking at turkey straits crisis which was a very specific circumstance to which there were specific measures taken in terms of u.s. military a
governments are talking on a cabinet level today for the first time. and then there's a russian defense official discussing ukraine with nato members in brussels as well. of course, there's only one man who can make or break any deal. that's vladimir putin. it's just unclear what he will do next. talking about sending international observers. will putin allow them to go into crimea? we just don't know. now that putin controls crimea, that may be the new status quo, to remind everyone that ukraine's future depends on him. betty, back to you. >> a lot of variables here. jim, thank you. >>> back at home, there is a new political fight to tell you about. president obama's $3.9 trillion budget is now on capitol hill. the highlight is a massive expansion of the earned income tax credit. the 13.5 million more workers would be eligible for $60 billion in credits. also included is billions for roads and rails. it's spending, the white house says, will bolster the economy. but republicans say the president's budget is dead on arrival, complaining that it runs up the long-term national debt. >>> a
. you were a former assistant of defense in the reagan administration. what's going on in russia right now? >> they have decided to take what it couldn't get with a carrot it's going to take with a stick. russia tried to buy ukraine, offered them a big loan, cheap gas. they said no thank you very much so russia is going to take what it wants which is crimea. >> what's at stake for us? >> for the last 40 years we have been promoting democracy. these people want what we want but they can't have it. russia wants it back. they want greater russia back. as much as president obama said it's a cold war game, it's russia at every step check mating the united states and supplanting us in that part of the world. >> when you see transport vehicles, aircraft landing in your city, it doesn't feel like a game. is there anything that would pull our american military into what's going on between russia and ukraine? >> we don't have a military option there. >> when the president threatens, what is he talking about? >> you'll ask to ask him. >> i mentioned that you were with the reagan administration an
and nothing happened. so the russian defense ministry said it didn't issue such an ultimatum, but the ukrainian defense forces said that they definitely received it. and journalists did report witnessing that ultimatum being handed to them. so, it's not quite clear who exactly is threatening whom, but the situation, you know, remains such that everyone is waiting for russia to play its hand and attack or not attack. >> what -- people in the area want or thinks, not the military but the people. >> i think ethnic russian community in crimea, which is the majority of the population on the peninsula, they are content to have the russian troops here protecting them from the new government that came to power in last month's revolution. however, they do not want any blood to be spilled. i think the minute that russia attacks any of the bases or kills any ukrainian servicemen, they will lose the support of the local population definitely. >> simon, if you will stand by, we will get back to you little later in the hour. thank you, simon. >> thank you. >> what should the united states
if they were russian soldiers that are not. he said those were local self-defense units. he even denies that they are russian soldiers there when we all know that that is the height of arrogance in my view. you saw the picture of those two sitting next to each other. have you seen the attitude that putin has towards the president of the united states. he doesn't respect him. >> so what are we going to do? it doesn't look like britain is going to go with us and germany is not going to go with us and western europe is so hungry for that oil that either originates in russia or comes through it or the natural gas. >> well, we are going to tell them they should be ashamed of themselves because you are right. but, we need to first help get ukraine back on its feet financially there. they're on the brink of collapse. second, make sure that we do everything possible to get mull dove have a and georgia into nato. third of all, we maybe need to do some military exercise with our small baltic state friends. we need to restate and start working on the missile defense system and the czech republic a

shaking in their boots. after all the russian told the president to take our missile defense systems out of europe, and president said yes, sir, and took them out, put them on the back of our navy, and gave the navy no additional asset to do that. now he is cutting asset that navy has, i don't think that the president right now has the credibility necessary to back up many of his statements. lou: and do you have a view as to what likely putin will do in ukraine? >> lou, one thing that we're always afraid of, when you see the vacuums then you know, president putin may try t to -- exhibit some of his muscle, a react on world react, not u.s. reacted we're hoping he will be deliberate and not do, that let the ukrainian people work this out forever themselves, no matter how difficult that work out might be. lou: i was to turn to the issue of defense spending, and budget cuts, that are being insisted upon our military, and the pentagon. you are a champion of our military. you are more concerned than most on capitol hill. about national security, day in and day out. what is your judgment of the
at where the money goes. billion for defense spending. that is what congress have control over's. nondefense, $563 billion. point $9nding is three trillion. 800 $96 billion for social security. 526care eats up about billion dollars. medicaid, 330 6 billion dollars. other mandatory spending comes in at $691 billion. interest on the debt, $252 billion. where the money is race, taxes.ual income 237 billion. other taxes comes to $363 billion. proposal reduces the deficit $564 billion. gail, republican color. -- caller. caller: it is driving the country over the cliff. died over 60 years ago and my mother taught me how to live within my means. this president does not know how to do that. you cannot spend what you do not have. he wants to give money to the -- gals and the you are looking to hurt anyone that does have a little bit. host: tax the rich. that is obama's main theme. where is the job creation atmosphere? budget.it is a good it is what we voted for by reelecting barack obama a second time. budget and it has 651 billion dollars in new revenue from the rich via changes to the

of the military with deep cuts to the defense budget. the proposal pushes health and human services spending over 1 trillion for the first time ever. what does the budget proposal mean for your wallet? we will break it down at 5:40. the first primaries of the 2014 election season are in the books. the elections in the texas area easily solved abbott and davis get their party's nominations. but things weren't quite as simple for the nation's oldest member of congress. 90-year-old republican ralph paul who is seeking his 18th term did not win 50 percent of the primary vote. which forces him nool a may runoff against former u.s. attorney jay ratliff. son of former governor jeb bush won the primary for texas land commissioner. he's expected to win the january election in november. >>> massive crowds celebrating mardi gras in new orleans. this morning the party is dying down because today is ash wednesday. this is a day where christians mark the beginning of the len ton season. they prefair for easter sunday and jesus' resurrection. on this day ashes are applied to believer's forehead like that. it is
and on their tvs, those are pro russian local forces of self-defense. president obama appearing at a function had this to say regarding putin's claim. >> there is a strong belief that russia's action is violating international law. i know president putin seems to have a different set of lawyers making a different set of interpretations, but i don't think that's fooling anybody. >> secretary of state john kerry who arrived in kiev also dispute putin's claim when he was asked about it by my colleague, andrea mitchell. >> it's clear that russia has been working hard to create a pretext for being able to invade further. russia has talked about russian-speaking minority citizens under siege. they're not. >> kerry talked about a meeting with the new government and protest leaders including former pro boxer klitchko. the package includes a $1 billion in loan guarantees. still, the question is how to interpret putin's remarks today. not only did he deny russian troops had invaded crimea, he said that should russia wish to do so, they have every legal right since they would be doing it at the request of t
, it is skyrocketing. >> i think that the military budget in may opinion, eric, is loaded. fundamentally, the defense is a responsibility of government. government is forced. defense is what keeps us safe. that's why the entitlement programs weren't present in the constitution and as -- they made it nonetheless. the defense is a proper role of government. redistribution is not. >> let me do this. i'm going to throw this to you and put a picture up here of two different people. we are going to take surfer boy on one side. we are going to take a military guy on the other side. are we now handing over lobster and sushi to surfer dude at the expense of the military guys who, by the way, juan, they have to pay more for tri-care, military health system, more for housing and their pay is being frozen? is that fair? is that the america we want? >> this is so simplistic it is laughable. are you kidding me? even thon thon said our military budget is bloated. we have programs that even the military says that they don't want or need. when it comes to surfer dude, everybody says that guy looks like a bum. he shou
henneberg is live in washington with more. >> fox news confirmed that defense secretary chuck hagel spoke to his russian counterpart today about the situation in ukraine. pension officials said there are no military contingency plans for ukraine. we don't expect to hear from the president again today, although we possibly could get an offcamera update from the white house if there are new developments. in president obama's remarks yesterday he warned russia any violation of sovereignty and territorial integrity would be deeply destabilizing. >> represent a profound interference in matters that must be determined by ukrainian people. it would be a career violation of russia's commitment to respect the sovereignty and borders of ukraine. >> the president said united states will stand with the internationiale community in affirming there will be, quote, costs for any military intervention in ukraine by russia. some republicans are questioning what that means. what it means to russian president vladimir putin, especially since russia appears to be sending military assets and troops into the c
attorney generals they don't have to defend laws they don't feel are defensible. what is going going to do about it? what is anyone going to do about it? >> that's the most common question my colleagues and i in the senate again. why can't you stop president obama? the truth is, we will stop him through litigation, through appropriations process when we regain the majority of the united states senate in november. obamacare is a disaster. the president's credibility is at an all-time low. and it's going to drag down his party. but unfortunately, when a president ignores his oath to uphold and defend the constitution and laws of the united states and chooses rather to cherry pick which laws to enforce examine which ones to wave or postpone, you have an unprecedented lawless situation that i know troubles a lot of people deeply, including me. >> okay. this week the president is due to release his budget. do you think there will be some common ground, the some areas that democrats, republicans, folks on the hill, folks in the white house can work together to improve the bottom loin when it com

of us that the chinese and iranians are watching this feeble response as we're gutting our defenses and they're planning their own next moves. it's not a good picture. >> colonel, we know that president obama and president putin spoke on the phone for about an hour and a half. do you think president obama understands the gravity of the situation and how important ukraine really is? >> no. in fact, i don't think that they recognize that this is a foretaste of what's to come if we continue the path that we're on for unilateral disarmament. we've got to stop battering our allies, like israel with the lunacy of trading land for peace. we need to build the xl pipeline, which our canadian allies want us to do and the obama administration can't figure out how to do it. if the iranians close the straights of hormuz next week, the price of oil is going to go through the roof and the economy is going to grind to a halt. all of these are the kinds of things that when america decides, a, we're not going to lead, and b, we're going to destroy the opportunity to deter this kind of action with a s
. it punishes the troops to reward fat cat defense contractors who sell the taxpayers -- i'm getting a little tired of hearing that inaccurate comment about going back to preworld war ii levels in 1940. it's worse than that. if we go back to the 440 -- or 450,000 troops we had in 1940. in 1940, an infantry division had a much smaller tail. less overhead, fewer systems to be maintained, smaller staffs. that division put a lot of rifle men up front. today a division equivalent. the bringing aids, they have this incredible and important tail, technical infrastructure. it puts fewer rifle men up front. if you go down to 440,000 or lower, you're going to have an army that not only is unready and incapable of fighting any major wars, and even strain -- >> are the pentagon officials -- >> let me just say, it's going to have 100,000 shooters in that army. >> officials said yesterday they're assuming more risks and they're acknowledging more troops would probably die, that's what the pentagon said yesterday, as per the new york times. >> let me first of all say i want to agree with the colonel on the

all because the department of defense refused to classify the assault as anything but workplace violence. now those soldiers being hit with more bad news. their live expenses are set to skyrocket. sergeant lunsford was shot seven times in that attack, not able to get the benefits he deserves and now this. how does this resonate with you? i'm talking about the proposed budget cuts and what it means to people like you? >> with the budget cuts that are coming down for our current service members, it is very detrimental to them. it's basically showing them they're not worth that much. in terms of war, this is like being a body being expendable, g.i. issue. it is sad because when we join the military they say we're family strong first as far as army component. with everyone else, it kind of makes you wonder is this a choice we really should make and that's a large because we do need to defend our standard of living in our country. >> quickly, 9/11 we had a different enemy than we had on september 10. the only thing we know is we're not ready to fight any battle let alone the one that
that the russians are doing. the russias defense minister announced they're seeking basing privileges around the world in nicaragua and venezuela. so they want to have a blue water navy again, at the same time the russian defense minister said we're going to our old military bases in the former soviet union states and going to modernize those, and then today the russian military mobilizing on the ukrainian border. they're not going to invade but they're saying, take us seriously again. >> we have given them there are consequences, referring to you crepe. but in the case of cuba, when would be get alarmed, two ships, three ships, building weapons. >> the solution is not just to make a speech and say there will be consequences. there should be a much more comprehensive policy. for example, in cuba, the castros are going to die and whatever is first into cuba is going to have an enormous opportunity. we better make sure we're the first person into cuba, not the russians and the chinese. >> russia has the ties. >> but objects the astros are gone cube -- the castros are gone, it's an opportunity.

. that's really important. >> the thing thing is, it's just coming out the defense is apparently saying that pistorius, quote, sounds like a woman when he is screaming and that perhaps that is who this witness heard, that it was actually oscar pistorius screaming and not riva. >> got love a defense lawyer. i and they'll probably bring in experts, and the prosecution will say that's not what he sounds like. this is tried and front of a judge, not a jury. so they have to be careful of trying to say something that is really going to say to the judge, you're not being fair. i understand what you're doing for your client but you're not being fair. >> look for the judge to look at facts and law. >> that's different. because in america we do things in front of a jury, more emotional, flamboyant. >> not so much the prosecution. here they have to be wary of doing that in front of one judge, who does have two assessors who will help in the decision, but comes down to one judge to decide if it's a conviction, what the penalty would be, 25 mandatory minimum if it's murder. there's no death penalty
